    These fellows have presented some useful ideas based on updated studies of years ago and other global information. These include a road from Brazil to the Atlantic….a faster outlet for Brazilian exports, hydro electric with Brazilian aid, economic use of our abundant water supply, commercializing/marketing some of our fruits (e.g. quinoa, soursop) with specific nutritious values to a health conscious market etc.
    Have the years in Guyana been wasted with incompetent governments and leaders or what.

    We are slow to develop export of our fruits to the Caribbean where there is a strong demand. Others far away with less of an economic advantage will take those markets if we do not act.

      What Rupert Craig used to refer to as “Time Lag…”

    I have been out of touch with the infrastructure development, industrial growth and things like that, in Guyana, for the past three decades.
    However, goals can be – positively – like ‘castles in the air’ but there remains the challenging task of building a stairway to such a castle; and I wish the presentation had contained more on that aspect.
    In my day, “Operation Bootstrap” was held up as the example of motivating a nation. The closest Guyana has come to that concept was the “FCH” program which I think, must have been the brainchild of LFSB. I recall the derision that his (milk and cassava) manifesto generated in 1961 or thereabouts but in my opinion, it was a path, rocky and rough, to a worthy, national destination and I have always credited Mr. Burnham with that vision of national self sufficiency. Sometimes I despair of Guyanese being motivated en masse.

    I feel obliged to comment on the statement – It is the only English-speaking country in South America.
    In the old days of the “British Empire”, this statement was probably used to reinforce the other ancient idea that “the sun never sets on the British Empire”. In the mid 20th. century, British Guianese used to brag to our West Indian neighbors, “We have a Continental Destiny!”
    Consider this; in 1959 I had passed at GCE “O” level in French and Latin. My first job was as a teacher in the Rupununi – and I was singularly unprepared to communicate in either the Portuguese or Wapisiana language without an interpreter. To this day, I believe firmly, that Spanish would have served me better than French; with apologies to my brother in law in Toronto.
    Yet I do believe that Guyana can capitalize on its location and culture by serving as an entreport between its Hispanic neighbors to its south; and its West Indian neighbors across the Caribbean sea. I just do not know how.
    In that respect I have this sneaky feeling that I share something with Mr. Ming.
